Cantering the Country

Canter about the country as you introduce your students to the fifty states and Washington D.C. State geography, history, mottos, animals and other regional information is collected and presented in this comprehensive notebooking unit study. Each state features an introductory reading passage followed by interesting facts and a booklist separated into general reference, geography, history/biography, science, literature, language arts, and character (derived from the state motto) categories. A list of activities rounds out each state, allowing parents to pick and choose what they'd like to do. Small reduced images show you what notebooking pages to complete from the CD-ROM. The included CD-ROM contains reproducible outline maps, word searches, crossword puzzles and in this new edition, even more notebooking content! 261 pages with limited reproducible pages, softcover. Grades 1-5.

My daughter enjoyed this this year as she is a hands on learning and likes all the activity; however, I wish there was a way to include memory work for each state, capital and major geographical landmarks.

My children absolutely love Cantering through the Country. As soon as we received this in the mail they were traveling through the pages.

My kids learned a great deal while having tons of fun. We plan on doing it again this year in preparation for a cross country trip next year and will add in some fun lap books.

It is a nice unit study of the United States. There is prep work for the parent. I do like that they put all of the activity pages on CD in PDF format so you can just print the pages off instead of having to make copies. They also have a bonus section on the CD with journal pages. The only thing that they didn't include on the CD that I wish they did were the additional pages in the Appendix in the book. It is only 7 pages so it is not too big of a deal.

There are a few resources that they do recommend purchasing but not required to use Cantering the Country. I am planning on using this along side of some state lapbook kits that I have purchased to teach my young children.

I used this with two young children and they loved it! We traveled all over the country. Once of the recommendations in the book was to receive free visitor guides from each state. My kids loved seeing the differences between states across the country. Not all activities in the book worked for us, which is why I had to do some more prep work, but it was a great resource none-the-less.
